HillStream Loach (Sewellia Lineolata)1 to 2 inch.
The Hillstream Loach is a really neat little fish that is great at eating the small crustaceans and larvae (aufwuchs) that grows in algae.
The tank the Hillstream Loach should be put in should be well established since they eat algae and a new tank doesn’t seem to have any algae in it right away. The tank should be pH neutral to slightly alkaline for them to thrive as well as medium hard water with a temperature set at 68-75?F (20-24?C). They should be fed good quality algae wafers, mysis shrimp, or blood worms. If these fish are well cared for, and have the proper tank set up, they can live for 8-10 years and ge upt to 3″ at most.
